UP-ImapProxy proxies IMAP transactions between an IMAP client and an IMAP
server. The general idea is that the client should never know that it is
not talking to the real IMAP server, but ImapProxy caches server connections.
ImapProxy was written to compensate for webmail clients that are unable  to
maintain persistent connections to an IMAP server. Most webmail clients
need to log in to an IMAP server for nearly every single transaction; This
behaviour can cause tragic performance problems on the IMAP server.
ImapProxy tries to deal with this problem by leaving server connections
open for a short time after a webmail client logs out. When the webmail client
connects again, ImapProxy will determine if there is a cached connection
available and reuse it if possible.
